Juventus midfielder Melo aware of Arsenal interest

Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo is aware Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen on him.

Melo has endured a difficult debut season with Juve and speculation has again claimed that Arsenal boss Wenger is planning a £15million swoop for the Brazil international.

Wenger revealed earlier this year that he is still an admirer of the 26-year-old and may now step up his interest following doubts about Cesc Fabregas' future at the club.

Melo, who is preparing for Brazil's World Cup campaign, accepts his first year at Juventus has not been ideal, but he insists he is not looking to secure a move away from the Serie A side.

"Juventus' season was negative and didn't go as well as expected, but my performances were good," Melo told tuttojuve.com.

"I have heard about the interest of Arsenal, once again, but there is nothing concrete.

"The only certainty is that I still have a four-year contract with Juventus and Juventus fans have a great affection for me, so I want to win a title for them."
